Cupid Snow Globe- Quick and easy Valentine's decor

 
 I had so much fun making snow globes at Christmas that I wanted to make more. I thought that these would be fun for Valentine's Day too. I originally wanted to find a cupid figurine, but couldn't, so I made my own with my trusty Silhouette SD.

To make a snow globe you'll need:

An empty jar
Red cardstock
heart punch
fake snow
cupid die or file
pop dots and glue dots
washi tape

I chose to use cupid Design ID #15816 from the Silhouette downloads. I measured the lid to my jar and the height of the jar and sized the file accordingly. I covered my lid with washi tape (quicker than painting!). I placed some adhesive pop dots on the lid and stuck cupid's feet to them. This gives him a little height in the jar and holds him in place.

Next punch some red hearts out of cardstock and adhere them with glue dots to the inside of the jar. Add some faux snow and place the lip on with cupid attached. Turn upside down and you have yourself a cupid snow globe that "snowing" hearts inside.
